Alzheimer’s Support Group at Thomas County Public Library
Hopewell is pleased to be the sponsor of the Thomasville, Georgia Alzheimer’s Support Group on May 7th at Thomas County Public Library. The group will meet in the library’s Henry O. Flipper Room from 12 noon till 1 pm. This support group was established for the purpose of allowing those who are caregivers or families of those with Alzheimer’s to ask questions specific to the challenges they struggle with on a day to day basis. Topics vary from month to month, but they might include: How do I get control in my life? How do I avoid Caregiver burnout? What local Thomasville community services are available to my loved one? What are the costs of Private Duty care versus Assisted Living? What does Long Term Care pay for? And more.
Free lunch and respite will be provided by a Hopewell In-Home Senior Care registered nurse and one of our certified caregivers. Please feel free to bring your family member and he/she will be cared for in a separate room at the library by one of Hopewell’s Certified Nurse Assistant (CNA) or Home Health Aide (HHA) while you get to meet others who may be in a similar circumstance.
If you never attended a support group, it may be the most important thing you do to maintain your health and wellness. No matter what disease your loved one is suffering from, the camaraderie and sense of belonging that comes from talking to others who can empathize is a healthy course of action.
All caregivers and family members who are touched by Alzheimer’s are invited to attend. It will be a benefit to anyone looking to talk, listen and learn from others in similar situations. Topics such as: Home Health Care, Assisted Living, Living Wills, Private Duty Care, Respite Care and other topics may be discussed.
Please RSVP because space is limited. You can RSVP by calling: (229) 226-8183 or emailing Melinda Pollard at firstname.lastname@example.org. You may also review the flyer at: Support Group
